Winter happiness in and around the ****Hotel Fischerwirt Nature.ForestSPA!

A winter holiday like something out of a picture book: family-friendly slopes with natural snow, sunny days, romantic winter magic. On a winter sports skiing holiday in Salzburger Land, you experience pure enjoyment of nature, so varied and genuine. Only 20 kilometres away from the festival city of Salzburg, your skiing day already starts at the hotel, because even from your room you can see the Wieserhörndl with its summit cross, the highest point of the Gaißau-Hintersee skiing area.

Idyllic. Sporty. Snowy. Faistenau is known as a "snow hole". In addition to the classic winter sports of alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and ski touring, the Salzkammergut offers a wide range of wonderful winter nature experiences. Whether sporty or gentle - here in our natural jewel there is simply everything to be had.

To ensure that your ski boots are warm when you put them on in the morning and that you can slip into them easily, they are stored in the hotel's own ski and boot room at night. But you can also leave your equipment at home.  You are welcome to rent your ski equipment in Faistenau at Sport Auer or directly at the valley station at Sport Franky, as well as Hans Gassner - from helmets to the most modern skis of all leading brands.

An uncomplicated and stress-free skiing holiday is guaranteed at the ****Hotel Fischerwirt Natur.WaldSpa. The free ski bus takes you daily to the valley station of our Gaissau-Hintersee ski area, 2.5 km away. Make gentle turns over freshly groomed slopes, watch the morning sun climb over the Osterhorn group and take a break in between - just to feel the fresh mountain air. Our snow-covered Alps are the perfect place to recharge your batteries and escape from everyday life.
